Continues through March 15

Stencil art has a long, long history....like ancient. The history spans from pre-historic times (where the hand may have been the very first stencil pattern) through Edo period Japan, into Europe where Picasso, Matisse and many others experimented with "pochoir" (French for stencil) and onto the streets around the globe in more modern times.

For our next exhibit we take a look at three artists working with stencils today. St. Louis -based Peat Wollaeger brings us a character-rich cartoon-inspired style with a graffiti edge and will be featuring his latest stencil series "EYEZ," Chicago artist David Soukup explores the use of stencils to create intricate architecture-inspired works and Seattle-based Jonathan Wakuda Fischer mixes Japanese themes with modern culture and vibrant colors.

Seriously, you guys have the magic recipe goin on. This might sound like I'm blowing smoke. But, your showing the freshest stuff every month. I mean New york Galleries do it right... but you guys are more like LA this year. It's exciting to see everyones favorite toy store showing the best artists outside of Cali.

Thanks man. We're trying to show interesting work...things that appeal to us...things that are awesome. It's a pretty simple recipe.

I'm pretty excited for this show and everything else on the schedule this year. We're just having fun.

Also, a lot of the credit goes to our new curator, Mr. David van Alphen...he's a gallery booking machine!

I'm travelling today (to Wondercon!) but if you want anything drop us an email and we'll be on it in the next day or two.

Thanks everyone who came out to the opening ... and, of course, Jonathan, David and Peat for bringing the heat!
